Publisher's Summary

Dr. Eric Parrish is the chief of the psychiatric unit at Havemeyer General Hospital outside of Philadelphia. Recently separated from his wife, Alice, he is doing his best as a single dad to his seven-year-old daughter, Hannah. His work seems to be going better than his homelife, however. His unit at the hospital has just been named number two in the country, and Eric has a devoted staff of doctors and nurses who are as caring as he is. But when he takes on a new patient, Eric's entire world begins to crumble. Seventeen-year-old Max has a terminally ill grandmother and is having trouble handling it. That, plus his OCD and violent thoughts about a girl he likes make him a high-risk patient. Max can't turn off the mental rituals he needs to perform every 15 minutes that keep him calm. With the pressure mounting, Max just might reach the breaking point. When the girl is found murdered, Max is nowhere to be found. Worried about Max, Eric goes looking for him and puts himself in danger of being seen as a person of interest himself. Next, one of his own staff turns on him in a trumped-up charge of sexual harassment. Is this chaos all random? Or is someone systematically trying to destroy Eric's life? Lisa Scottoline's visceral thriller brings you into the grip of a true sociopath and shows you how, in the quest to survive such ruthlessness, every minute counts.

Suspense!

Where does Every Fifteen Minutes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book ranks among my top 20 books from Audible.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Suspenseful storyline. Plot moves along at a steady pace. Lots of info about the sociopathic personality. Plot keeps you wondering who the sociopath is who's causing so much trouble for the main character, until the end of the book Surprise as to who it is!

Have you listened to any of George Newbern’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

George Newbern is a very good narrator. He also narrates Harlan Coben's new book, "The Stranger."

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Is there a sociopath lurking around in YOUR life?

Any additional comments?

Buy the book! Lisa Scottoline's books never disappoint!

More twists and turns than Lombard Street

Didn't figure this out...wasn't even close. (I hate to admit that.) Love it when that happens.

Really Good Page Turner

My first by this author, and what a pleasant surprise. Entertaining, suspenseful, good characters and some nice twisty plotting. Looking forward to checking out more of her work. Worth the credit!

Not my favorite Lisa Scottoline book :-(

I have really enjoyed reading Lisa Scottoline books and I really enjoy mystery thrillers but I don't think this book worked. It felt slow and I could never really figure out where it was going...not in a good way. I almost stopped listening but hung in there hoping it would pick up since there were such good reviews. Just didn't work for me.

Awesome book !

I liked this book very much. Maybe because I work in the mental health field. But it was good from beginning to end. the end was a total surprise for me. I love that about a book. I would recommend highly.

Great read/listen

Loved this book. Great story, characters. I found myself completely invested. I like to listen to books as I fall asleep and was laughing (at myself) bc this was too interesting to doze off to :). I hope we have not heard the last from dr Eric. Thanks Lisa!
